“The restaurant was shocking”
Reviewed July 7, 2009

We visited the Minerva Restaurant hoping to find the ambiance and the food of high quality, but instead we left with a bitter taste. The food was pre-cooked, the service was below average and the management couldn't be bothered. The kitchen stopped abruptly and any additional orders were abruptly refused.
Never expected to receive such a response from such a talked about restaurant. We decided never to visit this place again.
I couldn't comment on the hotel, as thankfully we did not stay there.

This hotel has a supurb location. easy walk to the church and wonderful views. We woke up to sunshine and a view over the roof tops and out into the countryside. The staff were so helpful and recomended wonderful places for dinner and lunch. The room was large and airy, painted in nice pale pastles which is a nice change to the heavy patterned wallpaper you usually find in Italian rooms. there is no parking but you can drive to the hotel unpack the car and then park in the large lower carpack at the bottom of town ( about a 5 minute walk away )

Both the location and the personnel at the front desk at Hotel Minerva in Assisi were superb, a fact confirmed on both my first and second three-night stays. The kind and friendly staff are knowledgeable and helpful, always with a smile and a friendly manner. The bedrooms, bathrooms,and public areas are impeccably clean, and the restaurant offered good food and service. Because of the Minerva's close proximity to the Basilica di San Francesco, during the daytime hours in high tourist season, the rooms on the front of the hotel -- most of which offer beautiful panoramas, especially the third floor -- can be somewhat noisy; that inconvenience subsides in evening when the tourist buses depart. The quality, value, location, and staff are all excellent reasons for choosing the Hotel Minerva for your visit or pilgrimage to Assisi.

  • Liked — Proximity to Basilica of St. Francis and other religious centers
  • Disliked — A wee bit noisy during the day on busy tourist weekends.
